Over 60s can book COVID-19 jab appointments

Anyone over 60 in Lincolnshire who has not had a dose of the COVID-19 vaccination can now book a slot at one of the county’s main hubs.

A CCG spokesman, said: “People aged 60 and over are now able to arrange their appointment at one of Lincolnshire’s Large Vaccination Centres (Boston’s PRSA or the Lincolnshire Showground) by visiting www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination or calling 119 free of charge anytime between 7am and 11pm, seven days a week. 

“If you prefer to wait until an appointment is available with your GP or closer to your home address at one of our local vaccination sites, please wait to be contacted in due course as we continue to work through the national priority group order.

“Our GPs and their teams are currently focused on contacting people with underlying health conditions.

“If you would like to attend one of the county’s large centres, please do so.

“Those in Cohorts 8 and 9 (those over 50 or 55) should continue to wait for an invitation to book as the NHS will be in touch once it is their time to be vaccinated.”
